president sali was overthrown with the support of the obama administration and saudi arabia, he wasn't removed and a stable new government put in place. yemen is a very fractured country. you have a tribe in the north, shia enclave in effect in a largely sunni area. you have the factions that existed at the time the president was overthrown. they're still competing with one another. and you have al qaeda. as you just noted, they still maintain a capacity to strike, at least against yemeni targets. probably are still growing in strength within the country. you have yemen following the path of somalia, following what looks to be the path of libya, what may be the path of syria, of nation states in the middle east and north africa simply coming apart. having national governments in name only. governments whose writ does not run beyond their capital city. that's a very bad piece of news, very bad development for the united states. because it means the terrorists, whether al qaeda or others, can shelter in these states of near anarchy. >> you just said that al qaeda there is growing. but

as we are a day closer to a potential show down with syria. a few hours ago, president obama sat down for an interview with pbs news hour and said he has not made a decision on syria. let's watch. >> again, i have not made a decision. i think it is important that if, in fact, we make a choice to have repercussions for the use of chemical weapons then the assad regime which is involved in a civil uh war, trying to protect itself, will have received a pretty strong signal that, in fact, it better not do it again. and that doesn't solve all the problems inside of syria. you know, it obviously doesn't end the death of innocent sieve yan -- civilians inside syria. we hope political transition can take place. we are prepared to work with anybody -- the russians and others -- to try to bring the parties together to resolve the conflict. but we want the assad regime to understand that by using chemical weapons on a large scale against their own people, against women, against infants, against children, that you are not only breaking international norms and standards of decency, but you are cre
for watching us tonight. the biggest failure of the obama administration that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. in order for more than 300 million americans to have a chance at prosperity, you need a vibrant economy. at this point the usa does not have one. that is now on president obama. as you may know, the president's economic vision is focused on so-called economic justice, giving help to americans who don't have very much, providing vast entitlements means big spending and taxation. the president doesn't seem to trust the capitalist civic, instituting new regulations in the marketplace, inhibiting business expansion. the social justice economic plan is failing. the u.s. economy is stagnant, thus quality of life is going down in this country. here are the facts to back that statement up. 7 out of 8 jobs created during the obama administration have been part time jobs. 54% of american workers make less than $30,000 a year. when mr. obama took office, he averaged unemployment paid to an individual was 20 weeks. now it's 37 weeks. number of americans who have stopped loo
for being with us. >>> this is a fox news alert. the brits are snubbing president obama. so he go it alone in syria. >> aye. >> country, no. >> the noes have it. >> if the united states decides to lead military action in reprisal or to punish the use of chemical weapons last week, britain will not be part of that. >> i strongly believe in the need nor a tough response to the use of chemical weapons. this is clear to me that the british parliament reflecting the views of the british people does not want to see british military action. i get that and the government will act accordingly. >> we've been here in 2003. basically misled. we told there were weapons of mass destruction in iraq and there weren't. it is a complete humiliation for the obama administration. here's obama trying to gather an ally or two for a pinprick and gets nothing. >> the president laid down america's credibility by issuing a red line. >> the president of the united states said for a year that bashar assad thoos go. now we're in a position to go, now they have no strategy, no idea what they're doing. >> former secreta
't believe in what he is leading. >> i have no problem with president obama, if he likes to wear the helmet, ride the bike in martha's vineyard, that's fine. he evacuated 22 embassies friday, spent the weekend playing, his own words, i golfed, played basketball, took pictures with friends in the oval office, blew out candles. >> how about issue a statement or have a press conference, act like you're responsible, that you're not auditioning to play commander in chief in hollywood but you want the job and are serious about terror. this is nothing new to me. this is a president that doesn't have the stomach for terror. if the reports are correct, it was clinton and panetta told him to put the thing on bin laden. i don't think it is a priority. i think he should move the white house to california capital hollywood. >> i think that's disrespectful to the family and soldiers serving overseas, to families of people protecting the embassies closed down. for the president not to be in the oval office and making national security a priority, but instead he is more concerned about his own birthday par

is it for this special report. >>> for the first time president obama says he will seek authorization from congress. he says the u.s. should take military action against the assad regime inside war didn't torn syria for using chemical weapons on its citizens but according to the president he will wait for congress to vote on the issue. the news coming fast tonight from around the globe as the world watches and waits for a positive u.s. strike. prez obama making his case for action in a statement today in the rose garden saying the deaths of innocent civilians at the hands of their government should not go unpunished. >> here's my question for every member of congress and every member of the global community. what message will we send if a dictator can gas hundreds of children to dmeth plain sight and pay no price? make no mistake, has implications beyond chemical war fair. if we won't enforce accountability in this heinous act what does it sap to other members who do this? the governments who would choose to build nuclear arms? the terrorists who would spread biological weapons? >> we should tell you,
that the syrian government has used chemical weapons against civilians, president obama has asked the department of defense to prepare a variety of military options in response to the situation in syria. at least two senators are also calling for military action. elizabeth prann is following the latest on that. >> hi, shan n no. president obama and the international community has said the damage has been done. this as they agreed to allow inspectors to the outskirts of the city of damascus where the alleged chemical weapons were deployed. a senior u.s. official says it leads to a lack of credibility which begs the question what action if any will the president make? the officials say the president is waiting to make an informed decision about how to respond. some lawmakers say it is time to take action now. >> we have to act rather quickly. i think the horrific killings of people, murdering his own people and he has been doing it for awhile now, but obviously the gas that was used to kill his own people, i think we have to respond. rehave to respond in -- we have to respond in conjunction with o
. james? >> chris, good morning. president obama and his national security team approached this day, the president's 52nd birthday, not in a state of celebration, but rather one of apprehension. the u.s. embassy compound in cairo, egypt, is one of nearly two dozen u.s. installations that would normally have been open today, about is now closed. at the u.s. embassy in yemen, heightened security was ready discernible. a senior lawmaker told fox news that terrorist chatter picked up by u.s. signals intelligence exceeds anything witnessed in more than a decade. lisa monaco, the president's counterterrorism advisor, and susan rice, now the president's national security advisor, who led the interagency advice. rice chaired a principals committee meeting yesterday that included the secretaries of state and defense and directors of fbi, cia and nsa. still another participant in that session says it appears plotted at western, not specifically u.s. influence. >> we're taking it seriously, which i think you'd expect us to do. yeah, there's a significant threat stream, and we're reacting. >> t
president obama has repeatedly denounced leaks, there was an extraordinary breach leaked today, putting the administration in a flattering light. u.s. officials told "the new york times" the white house decided to close the embassies after intercepting electronic communications between top al qaeda leaders. one u.s. official boasting this was significant, it was the big guys talking and talking about very specific timing for an attack or attacks. the leak about intercepting electronic communications is a bit of unfortunate timing for the administration, just as it has been taking heat over whether the nsa surveillance programs go too far, although the new information showing such close coordination between al qaeda's core leadership in pakistan and top affiliate in the arabian peninsula raises new questions about whether the terror group is really on the run. >> we have brought continually pressure to bear on both al qaeda core and al qaeda's affiliates, and we have for a number of years made clear our intention in terms of the threat presented by al qaeda has shifted in focus to some o
july, 2008. some communication that the irs and fec are having. this predates president obama's november 2008 election. does that signal to you that at least it doesn't go as high as the white house? he wasn't even president then. >> it may. what we do know is there is communication going on that's not appropriate. it's about a question that should be totally dealt with in the internal re new service. that's what most concerns us. if it is referencing something before then, lois lerner worked at the federal elections commission before the irs. maybe she goes -- she's concerned about this. but the point is there is coordination. at least what appears to be coordination between two federal agencies. >> in terms of the response you want, you want the response back by august 21? >> last week, i had a chance in committee to question acting commissioner dan warfall and i said why don't we have all of learn er's e-mails today? it seems the first thing you would have done as commissioner is send us all her e-mails. who's she been talking to? she took the 5th. if you want to, as the pr
a very strong political taint. if you wouldn't say obama is weak, you know why he is weak, it is not because of failure to act. it is because 80% of the american people think he shouldn't act. >> you were on this panel on special report this week saying the president can't operate by polls. >> correct. >> is this president operating by polls? >> i don't think there is any question that he's responding to polls and responding to people within his own party. he is responding to manchin, carl levin. responding to libertarians like rand paul who oppose it. she not listening to john kerry, he is not listening to john mccain. they are hard line and they want him to go and go now. >> the time he should have been listening is before he made the announcement we have to act. before kerry said in front of the world the word of america is at stake. before the entire administration leaked the plan to explain exactly were it had to act. right now we are way beyond the other arguments, we are way beyond the polls. way beyond the issues, is this the best way to attack. i this it is not. t
, well, that's still out of control. oh, and on top of that obama care is weeks away, it is the perfect storm, but who is steering the ship? anyone? former congressman alan west joins us, good evening. >> how are you doing, greta? >> big overall question, do you think washington is listening to the american people? >> no, i don't think so. i think that washington, d.c. is very comfortable. somewhat insulated when you cross the potomac river you come into a different word. when you look at the fact there is no big problem with unemployment in washington, d.c. no big problem with the real estate market. there's no big problem with salaries in washington, d.c. business is good in washington, d.c. it's bad outside of the beltway. so you're right. here we are coming up on $17 trillion of debt and so we're going to hit the debt limit again. have to figure out how to fund the government. another short-term measurement because they didn't get the appropriations bill done and worry about the obama care exchanges kicking in the 1st of october. and it's -- the american people are starting to say w
